The stakes in this election.

There are two major pieces of news competing for our attention today: the Supreme Court decision in Moyle v. United States and tonight’s looming Presidential debate.

This morning, the Court dismissed Moyle, a case challenging emergency abortions in Idaho. While they made no determinations in the actual substance of the case, the dismissal has temporarily cleared the way for patients in the state to receive an abortion when their health is at risk.

NYT Headline

I am still working my way through the Court’s dissents here, but one thing is clear: if we don’t reclaim Congress and codify Roe, attacks on reproductive rights are only going to get worse.

Abortion remains safe and legal in Massachusetts and the handful of “blue states” that have enshrined reproductive freedom in their state laws — but we are still vulnerable to Supreme Court decisions on this issue and we simply cannot leave the rest of the country to suffer at the hand of extremists. Many other states have already restricted critical access to reproductive rights such as abortions. We must ensure that we don’t allow state legislatures to continue to push a radical agenda on reproductive rights.

I am ready to do the work to make Roe the law of the land — but to get this accomplished we must flip the House. Can you chip in today to my re-election campaign and help me keep my seat and uplift candidates who will be champions for reproductive freedom?

And like I said, it’s not just about abortion. There are dozens of other issues at stake this election cycle.

In November, we will go to the polls to decide if we are going to re-elect a President who has delivered historic investments in climate action, revived our aging infrastructure, and created millions of jobs. Or if we are going to allow a wannabe dictator and demagogue to return to the White House with his radical agenda of abortion bans, tax cuts for his wealthy friends, and attacks on crucial public programs and goods.

Donald Trump is not only a candidate with plans to send us back to the stone ages, he is an active threat to our democracy. On the campaign trail, he’s made statement after statement promising “a bloodbath” if he loses and to be “a dictator on day one” if he wins.

The only way we can be rid of his nonsense once and for all is to soundly repudiate him and the party he controls at the ballot box. Donate to our campaign and help elect a proudly pro-democracy majority to Congress.

Yours in the fight,
